50+ Fitness Hashtags to Use on Social Media

Looking for fitness hashtags to use on social media? This list is for you!

If you’re a fitness professional or someone working towards a career in fitness, I suggest getting on your social media game ASAP.

Starting a blog is something that I always recommend to help you grow your income as a personal trainer or other fitness professional. But if you’re not ready to take that leap, I suggest starting by growing your social media following.

Part of that includes using fitness hashtags on Instagram and Twitter.

When I started using social media (and well into my blogging career), I didn’t understand why hashtags were important. If that’s the boat that you’re in right now, it’s helpful to understand how things work.

Why hashtags are important:

When we’re talking about fitness hashtags, we’re generally referring to their use on Twitter and Instagram. (Honestly, it’s arguable how efficient Twitter is – it’s popularity is dwindling now. I still use it because it gives me a small increase in page views and income but nothing crazy.)

When used properly, hashtags like the fitness hashtags you’ll be using for your brand will help you find the right audience. They’ll also help the right people find you and hopefully follow you. Ultimately, they’ll help you hone in on your niche and target people who actually care about fitness.

Fitness hashtags for Instagram. Grow your instagram with these ideas.

Why narrowing down your niche & target market is important:

Targeting people who actually care via social media is a surefire way to send people to your blog. If you’re not blogging yet, you can still work with brands as an influencer. They’ll pay you to promote something via Instagram or Twitter. But brands don’t want to pay you to promote to random people – they want your audience to be specific.

If your audience is carefully chosen, they’ll prove themselves more invested in a topic and therefore, a specific product. If you’re being paid on commission, this is extremely important. Even if you’re being paid a flat rate, you still want to prove your worth to the brand you’re working with by sending them leads and spreading the word. In short, if someone followed you based on a fitness hashtag you used, they’ve proven that they’re already interested in health and fitness. That means they’re more likely to buy.

How do I use hashtags?

Fitness hashtags can be used in your posts and on your profile so that people can find you. They can also be used to search for people or posts. When I want to follow a specific group of people, I search by fitness hashtags (or whatever I’m looking for).

We don’t generally use hashtags on Facebook or Pinterest. In fact, it’s rumored that using hashtags on FB and Pinterest will actually “ding” you and reduce your post’s visibility. This is because the algorithms for these platforms just don’t use hashtags.

Instagram is a big-time hashtag platform. Many social media experts suggest using about 10 related hashtags per post. That means that when I post a fitness-related image on Insta, I use 10ish fitness hashtags every time. I try to switch it up to reach new people, but I always use plenty of hashtags so that in case someone out there were to be searching for those hashtags, they might find me and follow me.

What Do I Need to Get Started Growing My Brand?

Even if you don’t have a blog set up (Again, I highly recommend doing this so that you can start making money online) you can grow a social media presence. If your primary goal is to use fitness hashtags to earn money online, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open social media accounts that you’ll use for your fitness business. I use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest almost every day for this blog. If you have personal accounts already, you may want to consider converting them to business accounts or simply starting new accounts. (For FB, just start a “Page” for your brand.)
  2. Start participating and posting using fitness hashtags like the ones you see here. The more you interact with others online, the more followers you’ll gain. Play by the rules and get busy! Remember: Hashtags are really only good for Instagram and Twitter.
  3. Get on a consistent posting schedule. Social media experts have figured out that there are certain times of day that are optimal for posting. They’ve also decided that for FB and Instagram, posting more than once per day is a no-no. Just start familiarizing yourself and interacting with each platform. Don’t forget to switch up your fitness hashtags occasionally.
  4. Get your blog rollin’. There will be some opportunities to monetize your social media accounts alone, but most of the money-making opportunities you’ll find are going to be blog-related. (You’ll still use your social media accounts to send people to your blog.) So get on it! This post will help get you set up.
